About My Practice & Philosophy

  •  I enjoy working with a more specific clientele instead of the "general population".
    Clients come to me for specific reasons so... A high attention to detail is important to have in a therapeutic practice that serves athletes, seniors & children.
    I focus on new & old injuries and assist in keeping muscles 'pliable' while you're in PT (physical therapy).
    Once the muscles regain their pliability & flexibility...I introduce my clients to Pilates because it elongates and strengthens, improving muscle elasticity, tone and joint mobility.
    In addition: My clients also enjoy muscle wraps blended specifically for their needs with herbs and essential oils...

What Is Neuromuscular Therapy

What Is Neuromuscular Therapy?

  • This localized work is an intense form consisting of focused, concentrated body work. It is an ideal treatment for promoting relief of chronic pain with the following
    repetitive motion injuries
    trigger points
     tension headaches 
    old injuries
    pre-post sport surgeries
     pre-post physical therapy sessions
     arthritic conditions
    muscle tightness due to 
    intense work outs. 
     bad posture 
    and more...

How To Maintain & Strengthen

  •  Depending on the severity of your  condition, NMT can typically take 
    ​ 3-10 sessions (sessions can be weeks  or months) to really reach the results  we both look for.
    Once I see the muscles are truly "ready" to begin their journey back to strength...I introduce Pilates. 
  • Pilates will help strengthen the weak areas. The moves are specifically targeted for your specific needs. These are not Pilates "classes" the emphasis here is the theraputic need to "target" areas that have been weak due to injury or post-surgery stiffness".

    Body Scrubs ...work in a few ways: As you massage it over your body, the exfoliating granules help to slough off dead skin, and the rubbing action itself boosts circulation and helps drain your lymph nodes, by increasing blood flow to the skin's surface.

 Wraps are designed to improve the texture and appearance of the skin by helping to rid the body of excess fluids and toxins. Benefits of body wraps may include detoxification, boosting of the lymphatic system and metabolism, body contouring, temporary inch-loss, skin tightening, and skin softening
